Round Up: Skydrop WiFi Sprinkler Controller (8 zone)

The Skydrop WiFi Sprinkler Controller is a smart irrigation system that monitors the weather and skips waterings if rain is in the forecast. If you have a Nest device, the Skydrop can send it water usage reports.

The controller is not weather resistant, so you can’t mount it outdoors without a protective case. But Skydrop makes a really slick case that is only $49.99. The unit can be controlled manually, so you don’t need a device to make changes to your watering schedule.
